Abroad with Two Yanks (UA 1944, William Bendix, Dennis O’Keefe)



Two WWII Marine buddies (William Bendix and Dennis O’Keefe) are devoted to each other through thick and thin in the heat of battle. On furlough, however, it’s every man for himself when each tries to win the heart of the same woman (Walker). Comic capers and wartime hilarity include Marines in drag.

Ah, the feminism-challenged Forties: The publicity for Abroad with Two Yanks promised “Two roaring Romeos who thought even the dames were on lend lease!
